How much time does it take to complete a Track My Progress test?

Students may test four times a year. The testing windows are Fall (August,September, October), Winter (November,December, January), Spring (February,March, April) and Summer (May,June, July). A student may take one math test and one reading test during each test window.
Do all the students in my class see the same test questions?
Track My Progress is a computer adaptive test that uses a question bank of over five thousand questions. During a test Track My Progress chooses the difficulty of the next question based on how well the student answered the previous questions. For example, if a student answers three medium questions correctly, the test is then going to give more medium and hard questions and fewer easy questions. However, if a student answers the medium questions incorrectly, the student will see fewer medium questions and more easy questions.
Can my students take the math and reading tests on the same day?
The math and reading tests cannot be taken on the same day. If a student completes the math test and then signs in again on the same day she will be greeted with a message that indicates her reading test will be available the next day.
Can students take Track My Progress tests at home?
Students need to take Track My Progress tests at school and under teacher supervision. They should not receive assistance answering test questions which may happen at home.
